Tony’s Books

Here they are, folks! Read ’em and weep…

I’ve written six travel-slash-memoirs so far; each one more terrifyingly inept than the last! Some people get better at writing as they go along – I just get more long-winded.

Having said that, here they are: all four books in chronological order. If you read them backwards, there’s a message from the devil. (It just says “Hi! I’m the Devil. Please buy my book.” His marketing guy offered me 10% of net sales generated this way, so I was like, “what the hell.”)

And for my next trick, I’m working on a Top Secret Project! Which *may* include ninjas. Or possibly space aliens… Watch this space!

(But it could be a while. You might want to order a pizza.)

  1. Hi Richard! Thanks for that! I hope you enjoy them. I’ve just started working on a new one, so by the time you’ve read the first 6, no.7 might be nearly ready 😉

  2. Hi Tony
    Just finished reading shave my spider. Absolutely loved it. Then found out about your other books so ordered them. This does mean I will read them in the wrong order but he ho. I really hope there will be a 7th book soon

  3. Cheers Henk! Glad you enjoyed Shave My Spider! The rest of them are just as daft, and it doesn’t really matter what order you read them in – though I guess the cat is out of the bag about who I end up falling in love with… 😉
    I’m working on Book 7 right now! I only just started it though, so you’ve got plenty of time!
    Hope you’re well mate!
    Best wishes,

  4. I’ve just ordered the first three for my 86 year old father in law who lives all my recommendations on books. I’m thinking if he and I loved McCarthys Bar and Road to McCarthy then this will not disappoint.
    No pressure there Slater…

  5. That’s great! I hope he enjoys them… and that the writing isn’t too small! I’m sure he can handle the swearing, but you might want to warn him about the indecent exposure… 😉

  6. Hi am reading my way through your books am loving every minute of them am on book 3 at moment you both sound amazing and so brave on your travels very envious of were you go and we’re u both going good luck with your next travels and all the best for the future

  7. Aww! Thanks Carol, that’s lovely! Yeah, we’re a bit pinned down right now by all the virus restrictions, but planning our next trip away as soon as they’ll let us! Glad you’re enjoying the books – no.3 is Roo’s favourite, for obvious reasons 😉

  8. Hi Tony,
    I’m almost all way through Kamikaze Kangaroos (took me 1,5 days on a Greek beach) and what can I say, the Greeks think I’m a lunatic coz every 15mins I’ll burst out in crazy laughter and tears.
    I just thought I drop you a comment here while searching for the next majestic piece of art from you.
    Been to Australia, been a backpacker, travelled to Thailand, so I thought I knew the whole story and all, reminiscing about those places and those days back then might be quite nice, though.
    But what you made of out that is just unbelievably crazy, chaotic, a tiny wee bit idiotic, and just painstakingly funny.
    Thanks for that Tone-o! Keep it on!
    Yours, Ella

  9. Hi Ella! Glad you’re enjoying the book! The Greeks probably think we’re all crazy anyway (and they’re probably right!).
    I still love traveling when I get chance, though it doesn’t look like I’ll be doing much for a while – they won’t let us leave Australia! Still, there are worse places to be stranded for a while 😉
    Hope you have a great holiday!
    Best wishes,
    Tony (Tone-o)

  10. Hi Tony, I finised reading the first set of three books on my Kindle and loved them.. Well done.
    Some parts where I was laughing, I had to stop reading to dry my eyes I laughed so much. My wife kept asking if I was okay.
    It’s grat to have someone with a similar sense of humour.
    Has the next three books come out for Kindle? I would like to follow up on your adventures.
    Thanks for finding time to write.

  11. I finished the 1st in about 30hrs. More like devourer of pages. And immediately bought the rest for my 20th wedding anniversary before my husband sees the card statement ????? much (mucho.) Appreciation of the author & family!!!!

  12. Thanks Dawn, that’s great! Wow, 30 hours… that’s an impressive reading marathon. I’ve only ever read them in small bits while editing, so I had no idea how long it would take! I do hope you enjoy the rest of the books – there’s plenty more craziness to come. Let me know what you think, eh! 😉
    Best wishes,
